A new report from MITRE digs into how to manage cyber risks related to using artificial intelligence capabilities in critical infrastructure and suggests a “prioritized risk-based approach” for securing AI-enabled systems through five core recommendations.

The report says steps taken to secure AI should be similar to the process established in Obama-era Executive Order 13636 for improving cybersecurity risk management in critical infrastructure.
